Shooting does not come without its share of hazards. One of which is flying brass. When a gun shoots, it ejects brass shells. Very hot brass shells. When in competition during the rapid fires there is a long line of shooters only 2-3 feet apart. The person to my left has his brass flying out… Read more »

Well, they keep calling me! That is a good sign. In fact this week I was sent a confidentiality agreement to sign. They said this does not mean I am chosen yet but that I am a “favorite”. An even better sign! It is starting to settle in a bit that this might actually happen…. Read more »

I was lucky to have had Charles my husband bring me in to shooting. But even he got in to it by accident. He was a Marine for a few years in his early days, (Oh sorry, once a Marine always a Marine) and shot an M14. Much later he went to a gun store… Read more »
